Raining mice & spider webs in Australia

Raining mice & spider webs in Australia




Now climate change we know has made our  lives a lot more difficult the seas are  rising  our summers are hotter the cyclones are  getting bigger  but for australia the problem is a bit  more  immediate in australia they're dealing  with  animal invasions spiders are blanketing  fields  and roads with their webs and millions  of mice are cutting their way through  farms  it may sound like some heavenly  reckoning but these animals are just  reacting to the extreme weather  here's a report  australia home of the outback and  untamed wilderness  an animal kingdom where humans are mere  subjects  nothing's a surprise down under  it's all about how active your  imagination is  don't believe us see for yourself  welcome to the state of victoria where  the spiders have  mounted an invasion scientists call it  ballooning victoria saw some wild  weather last week  dozens of trees were toppled and parts  of the state  were flooded sensing danger the spiders  fled  they took refuge in these fields and  road signs  before long they were weaving webs  all over the place  and this is the result a countryside  blanketed by sleek silvery coils  the spiders are long gone but their webs  remain elsewhere there's another  invasion  underway a deluge of mice  gnawing and biting their way across  eastern australia  this week they reached here the  wellington correctional center  authorities could see the disastrous  headlines  prison break the mice plague edition  so they acted fast around 200 staff  and 420 inmates have been shifted out  and now the cleanup begins  the rodents are hanging from the roof  and burrowing into walls  once they are cleared the inmates will  return  will be evacuated as far as threat  assessment goes  the mice are far more dangerous  millions of them have invaded homes and  farms  at night it's almost like the entire  house has come  alive the footboards are squeaking  the attic is bustling and there's  certainly something running around  under your bed not fun at all  the mice plague is almost exclusive to  australia  they come when heavy rains follows a  long spell of drought  locals say this plague is the worst they  can remember  and experts predict it could get worse  australia's seesaw climate is  causing these strange events  unusually long dry spells followed by  biblical rains  hardly surprising that the animals are  acting out  the government is using an acute poison  to repel the mice  but how many rodents can you kill  and how long before the next wave of  rodent road rash.
